Cleveland County Continuum of Care (CoC)
The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) introduced the Continuum of Care (CoC) Planning Process in 1994. This community-based planning process identifies, prioritizes, and works to meet the housing and supportive services needs of homeless individuals and families to include Transitional Housing, Permanent Supportive Housing, and Rapid Re-Housing.
About the CoC
The Continuum of Care (CoC) Program is designed to promote communitywide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, and State and local governments to quickly rehouse homeless individuals and families while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused to homeless individuals, families, and communities by homelessness; promote access to and effect utilization of mainstream programs by homeless individuals and families; and optimize self-sufficiency among individuals and families experiencing homelessness.
